[L]ocated in his home town of Figueres, the Salvador Dalí Museum hosts an immense collection of the artist's paintings, sculptures, and jewels.
Everything from the building facade, to the layout of the interior courtyard, reflects the Spanish artist's perspective on the world.
The day before the TBEX conference kicked off, I had the chance to visit along with a group of fellow bloggers.
While our guided tour of the museum showcased the highlights, it deserves a good 3-4 hours if you want to take it all in.
I'd recommend a guided tour for the information, plus additional time to wander and explore on your own.
